French C1890 Gilt Bronze Figural Mantle Clock W/ Rouge Marble Base No Reserve For Sale
FRENCH C1890 GILT BRONZE FIGURAL MANTLE CLOCK W/ ROUGE MARBLE BASE
listing is for a nice, circa 1890, French bronze figural mantle clock with rouge marble base. The clock, as a whole, measures 24 inches or 61 cm high.
The bronze figure is of female water carrier walking through the reeds. She wears a diaphanous dress and holds an amphora on her shoulder. The bronze has its original gilt gold patina or color. The figure is mounted on a rouge marble column form base with bronze mounts. At the center is the clock face with porcelain dial and both Roman and Arabic numerals. It has fancy open work gilt hands and is marked “PARIS”. The dial is protected by a bronze mounted hinged door with convex beveled glass. The clock is an eight day time and strike; the bell chimes on the half hour and counts the hours.
The condition is as follows; the bronze has age appropriate darkening to the patina and at the woman’s neck is a small separation in the metal, very minor. The marble is in overall excellent condition with minor fleanicks to the edges. The dial has minor chips around the key wind holes. The clock does not run and needs the kind attention of a clock person. The clock does have a pendulum and key.
Please see the many photos for more on the look and condition of this very pretty clock.
